Mill Creek is a true school community! It is inviting and focuses on all the positives to truly teach students. They get amazing results because of strong teachers, volunteers, and simply because they make it so fun and innovative each day. My kids love their school, and as parents so do we.

My child has attended Mill Creek Elementary from K to 2nd grade and my husband and I are considering enrolling her in a new school. Each teacher she has had has been bubbly and wonderful when the parents are involved, but the moment they are gone, their attitude changes. I think the student to teacher ratio is too high and the teachers are overwhelmed with the number of children in their classroom - thus making them stressed out and unable to handle the kids. My child was rated a genius before coming here. Now, she has been labeled a "problem child" because the teacher is relying on tattle telling rather than witnessing the problem first hand and dealing with it accordingly. We enrolled our child in a tutoring center just to bring her back up to speed and their reports of her have been stellar. I am very disappointed in the teachers favoritism and reliance on second hand information when problems arise. My child has been humiliated several times in front of her peers by her teacher and despite the fact that I have constantly been in communication with the teacher, her dislike toward my child is so evident that as parents we now feel we have to protect our child from the her.

I have one child attending Mill Creek Elementary. It has been an amazing school for us. They are not only on top of getting help for children who are behind but are also amazing with advanced children. A lot of schools lack programs for children who are gifted but mill creek and the other elementary schools in this district have an amazing program and that the tailor to every students needs. The teachers and at the school are all wonderful. they take the time to get to know there students and the students family. Mrs. Berg is an amazing principle. The school has a high amount of parent volunteers. I couldn't imagine a better school.

My daughter recently switched from another school to Mill Creek, her teacher has been able to see that she needs more of a challange than just basic letter recognition in Kindergarten. She has adjusted things a little to allow for a easy transition, and to allow for my daughter and 4 others in her class that are reading well.

Going to Mill Creek has been a pleasure for my child. He learned to read very quickly, and the school is very organized and administrators are great. PTA and parent involvement are great. Great job Mill Creek!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
